The most famous prehistoric monument in the world, and now a world heritage site, Stonehenge stands alone in the vast empty tract of Salisbury plain. Its origins date back nearly 5,000 years and it has been home to pagan religion and spiritual worship, not to mention public debate, ever since. What was this vast collection of stones intended for? Was it an observatory of the moon, a temple to the sun, or an elaborate cemetery? Who were the people who carried and carved these 40 ton rocks? Come and unlock the secrets for yourself and marvel at this remarkable and mysterious feat of ancient engineering and design.
Then head on to Bath, another world heritage site. Bath is a beautiful Georgian city with delightful crescents, terraces and architecture. Following a scenic drive into the heart of the city, there will be plenty of time to explore at your leisure. There are numerous cafes and restaurants where you can purchase lunch on your own. You could visit the Roman Baths, built around 2,000 years ago or visit the Bath Abbey or scenic Pulteney Bridge overlooking the Avon river. Other sites of interest may include the Jane Austen Center and the elegant Assembly Rooms built in 1771.
At the appointed time, you will meet your guide for the drive back to London.
